Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You�re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the Forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it�details of personal disputes may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it�s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users� profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses � Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it�s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who�s selling it, it doesn�t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions � Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services � Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products � While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements � Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be �bumped� excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues � Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators� discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you�d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user�s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    I just bought the Tipperary Windsor. I love the fit and the look. Unfortunately I haven't been able to ride in it yet due to really wet conditions but I am looking forward to trying it. Will report back on the ventilation.

      Those of you who bought the Tipp, is sizing consistent with their regular helmet? I’m also a fan. Had a trauma void but a piece broke off after three rides - Dover refunded me bc they couldn’t find another one in my size ;(. I have a small
      head...

        Tipp JUST now is available. I think you might have to wait a bit for sizing.

        Also you can call Back on Track's office....They're awesome at finding helmets and replacements.

          You might try the Back on Track then.

          I’m a 6 3/4-6 7/8 and the Back on Track is a really good fit.

            Tipp told me that the FIT is different than the sportage but I still ordered the same size. I’ll report in when it arrives

                        Champion and Charles Owen have skull caps. In theory Tipperary had mentioned one as well. But I haven't seen it yet.

                        In Europe Trauma void has one.

                          It arrived. Fits me like a glove. I'm so glad I waited. I ordered the same size as I wear in the Sportage. Despite being told by a Tipperary rep that the fit is a bit different than the Sportage, I'm not sure I agree in terms of "fitting the shape of my noggin." Yes, it sits differently than the Sportage but to my feel, it fits the contours of my head the same. I'm keeping it.

                          It does not feel like it's amazingly well ventilated, though it does have the little vents along the detailing in the front. Will report back on that once I've ridden in it.

                          It does not feel quality wise like it's any jump in quality over the sportage (materials feel kind of cheapy and low end) so I assume the additional $$$ went into the MIPS and design elements. It appears to be largely made of the same shell, chin strap, etc. as the Sportage, in other words.

                          It's what I expected and I'm looking forward to riding in it. I feel better using a helmet with the MIPS technology than without. I had really been waiting for Tipperary to finally come out with its MIPS model Click image for larger version

                              Rode in it. I take what I said about ventilation back. It feels no more/less ventilated than my Sportage. It visibly has fewer vents but it seems to circulate the air just as well even without as many vents. There might be more circulation space over all between the inside of the helmet when it meets the head and the shell? It seems like it to my non-expert eye.

                              I didn't notice anything about the helmet when I rode which is exactly what I was hoping for. Fits like a glove right out of the box. Feels no bigger/heavier than my Sportage even though when I pick it up in my hands I do think it is a bit bigger/heavier. The brim is larger too but again I didn't notice anything about that when I was riding.

                              I wish the chin strap was a little less... chintzy... but I've long felt that way about all the Tipperary helmets I've had.

                              Very happy with the purchase. I'm a really loyal Tipperary customer, their helmets have always, always, ALWAYS fit me best and I am glad they finally made a MIPS helmet so I could buy one without having to try other brands and worry about fit.

                                  I got a CO MyPS, because it fit the shape of my head much better than the Trauma Voids. But compared to my old $40 Ovation schooling helmet, it's much heavier, and much hotter. So if that's something that bothers you, I'd try another brand first.

                                  I still like the helmet, and have gotten used to it. But I also moved from Miami to Southern California a couple years back, so mid-summer here feels like a breeze compared to South Florida. As long as I'm not sweating out of my eyeballs, I'm not complaining!

                                    That is great to hear about the Tipp. I will definitely get one as that is the brand that fits me the best, and in my brief experience with the Back on Track one it wasn't as good a fit. I'm not riding as we are not allowed at the barn right now but will get one when I am un-quarantined....

                                      I received my Back on Track EQ3 (smooth) in navy yesterday. I like the look of it. (I had previously ordered a brown in suede because they were on sale, but it was a bit too small.) And I got 15% off for signing up for the newsletter.

                                      When first fitting it, it felt a little loose, but that was partly just the sliding of the MIPS. Once I put my hair in a ponytail (as I normally ride), and got the chinstrap adjusted, then I was able to do the "forehead" test - helmet moved my skin when I tested it, rather than the helmet sliding around.

                                      I rode in it for a trail ride, and found it comfortable. The vents seem ok but it's not the right weather to test that right now!

                                      My only concern is that the chin strap sits a bit forward - like it could slide over my chin. So I had to do it up fairly snugly.

                                      The company has an accident replacement policy, crash within 24 months and get 40% off MSRP.

                                        I used it once so far, could have used it twice but felt 'attached' to the hat that saved my life and didn't want to send it away.

                                        So I bought a new Lynx on sale instead (for the same price as a replacement EQ3)

                                        Buying one of the fancy European Lynx models next.

                                          I also just bought a Tipperary MIPs helmet (the Windsor) with the wide brim and LOVE it! I rode with it one day last week when the temperature was in the high 80"s (Texas) and the ventilation was good. It fits like a glove, is lightweight and very comfortable. I like the wider brim to keep the sun out of my eyes.

                                          I feel it's a good value too for the money. I paid about $350 for it at our local tack store, it might be a bit less expensive online.
